A road trip to Auburn turned into a straight set win for the Missouri volleyball team on Friday. The 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-22) win was Missouri's 28th win and fourth consecutive sweep, knocking Auburn down to 15-9.

It was Auburn's last planned match in the Student Activities Center before playing the majority of games at the Auburn Arena, according to an article on the Auburn athletics website.

The building hosted Auburn volleyball for 28 seasons in an arena with a set of bleachers rising to one side of the court, Auburn's website said.  

"It was actually sort of like a high school gym," Missouri freshman Carly Kan said.

There were 465 in attendance on Friday.

"It was nothing like Missouri's amazing crowd," Kan said.

During the match, Missouri's senior outside hitter Lisa Henning had 17 kills and five digs, typical of the offensive-defensive threat she's turned into this season. Kan had a double-double as well, with 12 kills and 10 digs. Junior middle blocker Whitney Little put up seven blocks. Senior setter Molly Kreklow dished out 42 assists.

"I think we're feeling pretty good," Kan said of her team's attitude going into Sunday's match.

The win gives them confidence, but they will still have to arrive prepared, she said.

Alabama came to Columbia earlier in October. The Crimson Tide took one set in a 3-1 Missouri victory, becoming one of only seven teams to win a set against the Tigers this season.

"It's obviously really hard to win on the road," Kan said.

Still, at Auburn, the Tigers managed to soundly win one more time.

Missouri next plays at Alabama at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
